A warm welcome to SN from the Isle of Anglesey.
There is every chance that you will meet old shipmates on this site so, have a good look round and join in the banter as much as possible.
Beware, it is addictive! (Thumb)

Welcome aboard, Norman.
It seems you've met an old shipmate in our crew already.
Once you've found your way around the ship join in.
Enjoy the trip.

From Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia, Norman.
Good to have you onboard.
Chances are you'll be hearing from more old shipmates before long.
